In this flower of Ornithoglossum vulgare the three long and thin style branches are seen spreading widely. Each branch has a dull white section at the base that becomes faintly speckled with maroon colouring in its central part and green near the stigma tip. The branching of the style happens just above the chunky oblong, segmented ovary.
The ovary and anthers are darker in this older flower, compared to the young flower also shown in this Album. These flowers do not last very long. Lurking behind the open flower, a greenish unopened bud on a long pedicel can be seen (www.pacificbulbsociety.org).
